“Motor racing is a fascinating universe, we want to educate today’s youth to love it. Look at our car, it’s powerful, outstanding and disruptive.”

Before Nissan NISMO, there were successful Japanese motor racing teams. Few, however, have had the staying power—and the international success—of Nissan.

From the 1936 All-Japan Tamagawa to the 2015 European Le Mans Series, Nissan has taken on the best and earned a place at the front of the grid. How? By pushing their avant-garde technology to the limit and never cracking under pressure.


The first Japanese manufacturer to clinch the pole position at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the record holder for the fastest-ever lap by a production sports car at Nurburgring, Nissan is now gunning for glory at Le Mans in 2015, in a front-mid-engined hybrid Nissan GT-R LM NISMO, its most revolutionary and, with more than 1000 horsepower, most powerful race car to date...

After dominating LMP2 at Le Mans in 2014 with more than half the field, including the top five cars, using Nismo-produced Nissan engines, the team and the new car—a prototype built entirely from scratch—is moving into the top tier race at the famous endurance event, the LMP1. Nismo cars have seen action in JSPC, Formula Nippon, JTCC and 24 Hours of Daytona. As a supplier of Nissan racing cars and/or engines, they participate in V8 Supercars, FIA GT3 European Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship. Now in their fight for biggest crown in endurance sport, they have more than just a technological advantagen but also a pyschological one—because, like TAG Heuer, they are pathbreakers, unafraid to break with convention, ready to do what it takes to succeed, and determined to never crack under pressure.
